Reputation

Publicly known as the daughter of the wealthy Greek diplomat Hugo Natchios and his wife, Christina, Elektra has a darker reputation in certain circles as a peerless assassin and mercenary who revels a little too much in her kills.

Biography

Elektra Natchios was born on an island of the Aegean Sea to Hugo Kostas Natchios and his wife Christina Natchios. She was the couple's second child, after her older brother Orestez Natchios. At a very young age, Elektra lost her mother when she was killed by enemies of her father during a vacation. Subsequent to her mother's death, Elektra grew up very close to her father, who provided her all she could want in life, including her first lessons in martial arts.

Eventually, her father was appointed Greek ambassador to the United States of America, and they moved to New York City. She attended Columbia University, studying economics, living her best life as a wild and carefree young woman with the world at her fingertips. Her life seemed set.

But it was all cut abruptly short towards the tail end of her college years. Elektra and her father, while on a vacation together, were kidnapped and held hostage by terrorists. In the crossfire of the attempted rescue, her father was accidentally shot and killed.

His death broke Elektra emotionally, and destroyed her faith in the world and its systems. Withdrawing from Columbia and breaking all ties with everyone she knew, she left to seek training. Her purpose: to avenge her father and her own broken heart, by taking out her pain on a world which had hurt her beyond measure.

She found her way to the Chaste, and Stick took her in for training. He was eventually forced to dismiss her, however, for her continued emotional volatility over the death of her father, which drove her to increasingly violent acts, and for her hatred of the world that she blamed for it. Determined to prove herself and to prove Stick wrong about her, she infiltrated the Chaste's rival organization, the Hand.

They knew what she was up to. Taking her in, they tricked her into killing one of her old teachers, and nurtured the dark urges within her, using her anger to corrupt her even further.

Eventually — perhaps realizing what was happening to her — she rebelled against the Hand and broke away, fleeing Japan. Since then, for years she has worked as a bounty hunter and killer-for-hire, work she feels is all the world deserves from her, her reputation growing with each successful job.

**NOTE: Elektra has been rebooted by a new player as of August 2017. The current version has a backstory primarily drawn from the comics, with elements from the MCU brought in.

Character Details

Elektra is a woman defined by her anger and her hatred for a world which took that which she most valued. These emotions make her a destructive and nihilistic personality, one that revels in its own dark nature, and takes a pure joy in the ending of lives. On top of this she is a thrill-seeker and adrenaline junkie, a person in love with the unexpected and horrified of boredom and stagnancy. These qualities make her capricious and playful, an inveterate troll with a certain alluring charm, though beneath it all is still a passionate, laser-guided woman, deeply personal in all her motivations, to whom the ends almost always justify the means.
